During a latest interview with Kate Feldman of New York Daily News, Lynch addressed the rumors of her venturing into Hollywood. She revealed although she’s keen on making moves there, things were only starting. Hence, she feels it’s better to keep the details to herself as of now.

Becky also detailed how successful she wants to be, not just in the ring, but even outside of it. In fact, she even namedropped WWE Legend Dwayne ‘The Rock‘ Johnson while detailing her path to success.

Big Time Becks‘ said, “I hope I can be bigger than The Rock [Dwayne Johnson] and better than The Rock. The Rock is a good friend. The Rock is a great friend. But I’m on a different path and I’m different than The Rock and I’m not trying to be the next anybody. I’m the first Becky Lynch.”

Dwayne Johnson carved a path unlike any other for himself in the world of pro-wrestling and then Hollywood. While the ‘Man’ has definitely carved her path in WWE, there is still a long way till Hollywood. Although it’s not difficult to achieve what The Rock and John Cena have.

Either way, like she said, she’s the first Becky Lynch and hence, we can expect her to walk on a path no one’s ever walked on before. Just like Becky took the WWE by storm, she will do the same in Hollywood whenever she makes it there.
